Favorite Kitchen Tool of the Week

I have a lot of kitchen tools that I love. Some are obvious, some, not so much. I figured I’ll share a new one each week and share my love for these tools with the world. If you have a tool you love, share it in the comments!

This first one is a bit random. But it’s something I held off buying for a while, and once I finally did, I was so happy, because I use it all the time! It’s a scoop colander and although it’s one of the larger items in my kitchen crock, I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I use it when I’m blanching, steaming, boiling, or pretty much anything else in a pot. It saves you from pulling out the big colander, and is great for small delicate items (like handmade ravioli or gnocchi). They’re only $8ish, and they come in fun colors!
